Unless you’ve been living under a rock for the past few months, you are aware that part-time superstar Brock Lesnar is the Universal Champion.

At the recent “Extreme Rules” pay-per-view, Samoa Joe was victorious in a Fatal 5-Way match to become the new no. 1 contender for the title. He will now face Lesnar at the “Great Balls of Fire” event next month.

According to the latest edition of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, the contest between the two will be a one-time event, with the current plan still being for Lesnar to face Braun Strowman at “Summerslam.”

What makes this interesting, is that Strowman is currently on the shelf with an injury that he suffered during his feud with Roman Reigns. He was originally scheduled to be out for 6 months, but the backstage news is that he will be back in time for “Summerslam.”

In addition, “The Beast” is scheduled to hold the title until WrestleMania, where he will face Roman Reigns. Leading up to the event, he will reportedly have matches with both Seth Rollins and Finn Balor.

Editor’s Note:

Honestly, I’m over the whole Brock Lesnar experiment. I get that he’s an attraction, and that it’s always special when he is around, but there are so many other superstars on the roster who deserve a shot with the Universal Championship. Let them have it!
